Limitations l.jpg
Limitations to adopt a new EHR system

  • Massachusetts only

  • New measure of EHR usage (may not be comparable to other studies)

  • Cross-sectional: difficult to draw causal inference

Conclusions l.jpg
Conclusions to adopt a new EHR system

  • Fewer than one in four office practices in MA have EHRs

  • Nearly 50% of physicians in MA have EHR in their practice

  • Larger practices and hospital-based practices were more highly correlated with EHR adoption

Conclusions 2 l.jpg
Conclusions (2) to adopt a new EHR system

  • For practices without EHRs, >80% report finances as major barrier

  • Both financial and non-financial (e.g., cultural) barriers persist

  • EHR decision-making is local  Implications for interventions
